    Hi,

    Is it possible to install Windows XP x64 on a Dell Latitude 5490? The laptop is UEFI-only (it can only boot legacy from external ports), so I would need to install XP x64 on UEFI, I can boot the XP x64 installer with WinSetupFromUSB and complete the first stage because I can boot legacy from external drives, then after that, I would add the Server 2008 EFI files I shouldn’t have to integrate graphics drivers as I can install Vista and 7 on the laptop with zero problems (Vista has a few bugs as with all post-Ivy Bridge installs, but it’s still functions). Initially, I had some problems with the ACPI, but I think I was able to fix it by finding a driver (I used this: Compiling ACPI v2.0 driver for Windows XP SP3 and Windows 2003 SP2 (x32/x64) - Page 71 - Windows XP - MSFN). However, I am now getting the 0x07B error, and I can’t find any drivers for my SSD as it’s not an Intel SSD, it’s a Micron SSD, so Fernando’s drivers wouldn’t work as I have tried them. I found some hardware IDs for my SSD. I found SCSI\DISK&VEN_MICRON&PROD_1100_SATA_512GB\4&1F3FCE9C&0&020000 and SCSI\DiskMicron__1100_____________M0D. However, for the first one, I am only able to find drivers for XP x86 on drp.su, but I could find drivers for 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 11 both x86 and x64, and for the second I only found one for x86 (I think it might be Vista). Where can I find XP x64 drivers for this SSD and what would need to be done to get XP x64 working on the laptop?

    I know that. I know it isn’t officially supported on the laptop. But it should be unofficially possible to install XP x64 on that laptop as it is with Vista-8.1.
